Friday Image No. 164

Wet conditions in Padley Gorge, The Peak District. Fuji X-T2, 16-50 lens, ISO200, 0.9″ at f/13.0. Tripod mounted.

Yesterday I was out with a friend in the Peak District shooting. The weather had been forecast as dry but misty/foggy. Then at the last minute the forecast changed to rain all day. Despite this we decided to wait it out in Padley Gorge and eventually we had a dry spell, or at least dry enough to shoot.

Despite the poor conditions, one benefit of the wet is that the foliage responds really well. The only thing I regret about this image is that I didn’t use my polarising filter to reduce the glare on grass in the middle of the frame. Having said that, had I used the polarising filter, the saturation effect may have been too strong.

I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.
